He most definitely is teething. Have you seen any of his adult teeth starting to come in?

What kind of training are you doing with him? Are you doing tug, rag or bite work?

You need to be very careful when doing tug work with a young puppy. A puppies gums are sensitive and can be painful. Doing too much tug work can be damaging to a young pup. You can pull teeth out and if the dog is sensitive he will remember that painful experience for a long time. I would stop doing any bite work, even rag or tug work until all of his adult teeth are in. lay off for a good month or so. If you are new to bite work you may be doing more harm than good at this age.
